I love to cook for my family, but a few months ago I realized we had gotten into a serious rut. I was basically rotating between five common dishes, and it was getting really boring. I thought about the problem and realized that I might be able to spruce things up by learning a little more about cooking. My friend is a chef, and so I asked her to teach me some really tasty, yet simple, dishes that I could whip up in a snap. It was so helpful. This blog is about learning more about cooking, so that you aren't left wondering what to make for dinner.
